It was more than not-entertaining. There were several obvious factual mistakes that spoiled it for me. When Clarkson popped that line during series 10 about (paraphrasing here) "...we haven't included a fact in this show in five years...", he was talking about this DVD. It was a real disappointment.

are you lot still upset about that DVD? lol
I remember when it was released you lot were not happy and clearly nothing has changed. But i agree there were some errors, but it was a good watch while we were waiting for TG series 9.

Well, it wasn't unhappy it was....disappointed. I'll take all the grief that Clarkson can dish out about American cars, certainly MOST of them deserve all he can give and more. But when he stands in front of a cow and calls it a bull, that's just sloppy. That, for all practical purposes, was what he did with the Mustang.

I guess I was disappointed that they cared so little about the production of the DVD that they let something like that go. I had just seen his older program, Motorworld I think it was, centering on his visit to Texas. It was so much better done and, frankly, I felt ripped off with this DVD. But I've whined too much about that already.

And yes, it WAS a good watch while waiting for nine! :D

"And the Hummer (or was it the other American SUV?) has stopped for no apparent reason!" :lol:

Well you know that is the point of 4x4 is to go offroading... I think his point might have been more along the lines "What a stupid creation this thing is".

Personally I rather liked the movie. It's entertainment who gives a crap about nitpicking?

Before you claim to have felt "ripped off", answer truthfully-

Did you pay for this DVD or just download it?<_<

Well considering if he DID decide to pay for it he couldnt have played it on his DVD player in all likelihood cause its region locked.. thats not an argument at all.

You mean there is still people out there using single-region DVD players?

Either way, if he downloaded it then it was Jeremy who got ripped off.

Personally, I thought the horse beating the mustang was hilarious.

That's one of his best DVD's... the haters here are just upset because Clarkson
made fun of US auto industry, but they seem to forget it's just entertainment,
like most of Top Gear anyway.

The whole dvd was quite dull, except for the Ford GTX segment and Jeremy walking around in las vegas, asking random ppl if they know any countries from Europe.
